A chat with Gurleen Raj
This month I welcomed Gurleen onto the podcast. Gurleen is a Graphic Designer, Illustrator & all-round creative. Working as a junior designer in Bristol. I came across Gurleen via Instagram and loved her passion and dedication to her work so knew this would be a brilliant discussion. Listen along for a chat about Graduation blues and transitioning from uni life to work life - something I think a lot of us are going through right now.
Thank you Gurleen for being so honest and creating this amazing podcast cover showing the transition from uni to work life.
A chat with Anthony Burrill
Last week I enjoyed a catch up with Anthony Burrill. We chatted all about the topic of comparison and how it's something that never goes away. No matter what stage in your career you are at. Thank you Anthony for being so so honest, such a valuable conversation one that has personally helped me see comparison as something that can actually be a positive, that helps you to grow and develop your creative practice.

So excited to share my chat with Daisy this week!
Daisy is a communication designer, printmaker and calligrapher based in London, with an interest in social design and design for good.
We talk about Daisy's project 'A place of unlearning', graduating in a pandemic, imposter syndrome, deciding to do a masters and how a grade shouldn't define your work. She speaks about working at Design by Country as a brand strategist and how rewarding it is to work with good people- because everyone deserves access to good design.
